DOCTOR’S ORDERS

I am having some foot issues and I must bid my ballet flats adieu.011440470704_03_03_645Wx645HFor those who are aware of my Roger Vivier  ballet flat addiction know how hard that information is for me to accept.

Bone Spurs and Plantar Fasciitis = not sexy.

I’m having orthotic inserts made.

Good God.

Is this the beginning of my downhill slide into old age?

Is this what happens?

Should I have not thrown my AARP application away?

I’m in pain so I must follow Dr. Handsome (my podiatrist) orders not to wear flats or go barefoot.

He suggested supportive shoes with my fancy new orthodic inserts and or a slightly raised heel aka a “wedge”.

Did I hear Dr. Handsome say “wedge”?

Lightbulb.

I have an awesome pair of wedges I bought this past summer.

I ran home and put them on.

They’re gorgeous and comfortable.

They actually felt great on my feet.

Something besides my clogs and lame athletic shoes.
Hallelujah!

So naturally, for the health of my heels I had to go shopping.

I thought since the summer Balenciaga’s worked so well I’d go for a new

fall pair. So cute with the Navy and Black accents, they go with everything.

I also love the color of these wedges.
They also come in black. Great running around town shoes.

Jack Rogers Better Than Ever

Once a prep always a prep.  No matter how hard I have tried to shake it, my preppy tendencies start coming back and I want to monogram something or get a pair of Jack Rogers Sandals. I’ve been wearing these sandals since the beginning of time, so imagine my happiness when I discovered a new take on them at Anthropologie. The sandals are jellies, so I can wear my Jack’s to the pool and beach!

Brilliant.

 I then hit the Jack Rogers website for a little more shopping and discovered that LA Artist, Kenny Scharf  had done a limited edition Navajo style sandal and a tote bag for the brand.

The color combinations are amazing and the tote bags are fun too.

My favorite tote is the one with the doughnut on the front…now that’s the kind of carb I want to indulge in.  It won’t make me fat, just fashionable.

I love this monogrammed version, especially the orange.

The Santa Fe Style is a great alternative to the Navajo.

Style icon Jackie O made these sandals a go to staple of the Palm Beach/Resort set.  The Navajo style has been kicking around since the early 60’s, just a little longer than me. Today, the Jack Rogers company is still going strong and the shoes are still hand made in Florida.  I love the history and tradition of the shoe and I plan on keeping that tradition going by buying a pair for my daughter.

Once a prep always a prep.

Hello Yellow

  Hello Yellow

I am officially obsessing over the color yellow.

Maybe the daffodils did it.  So bright and cheery on my breakfast room table.

Yellow was my favorite color as a kid.

 My room was wall papered in a delicate yellow rose pattern.

 Today I’d do a little something like this

 

 Love the curtains in this room

Yellow shoes are awesome.

 I have four pairs myself.

My pal Heather is not a fan of yellow when used in home decor, but she has no problem throwing a little splash yellow goodness on her feet.

Everyone should.

  Yellow can knock on my door anytime
